Still one of my favorite shows of all time, and some of Pig's best rapping during Good Lovin' (not to mention Boss Man, Hard to Handle, King Bee, Lovelight)! The way the band turns on a dime following him down the street after he and his old lady just got in a fight... nothing short of inspired.

Honestly it's some of the best of the time period, especially for Pig fans. Phil once said it was one of his favorites. A few years back I found myself near the Princeton campus for business and I took a stroll. I made a beeline for the Dillon Gym, what a teeny place!

Anyway, everyone enjoy! And get your buck and a quarter out for the pony rides!

+1 One of the greatest Pigpen shows ever. Amazing sound. The classic quintet. I had a partial recording of this show as filler on some old cassette, so I am partial to it, but it always lights a fire under me.

I have made similar pilgramages though not to Princeton's gym- namely the University of Rochester's Palestra and the University of Wisconsin's Camp Randall. All played by the boys in '71 and all very small places indeed.
